About the Book

Renita Akridge knows from personal experience that getting the short end of the stick in life does not mean that any of us are powerless, but instead that we are powerful. It does not mean that we are in a hopeless situation, but instead filled with hope. It does not signify that we no longer have a purpose, but instead is designed to help steer us to our purpose. In a collection of motivational poems, Akridge shares reflections geared toward those seeking new ways to cope with life’s greatest obstacles. Akridge identifies common struggles and pitfalls for those desiring to live according to God’s ways while providing gentle encouragement and time-tested wisdom for the discouraged and downtrodden. Throughout this volume, Akridge invites others to keep Jesus by their sides as they transition from the darkness of despair to the beautiful light of positive change. Getting the Short End of the Stick is a collection of motivational poetry and reflections that focuses on helping others embrace their faith and inner-strength and rise above their challenges in life.
